21st Feb 1948: four inches of snow
21 Sat. Four degrees of frost, four inches of snow greeted us this morning. There is a little less wind. It snowed all day fast at times and at night it looked a foot deep but I must look again in the morning. After a very mild winter when we thought we should escape severe weather we have a fall of snow as heavy as I have seen. Saw Chas pulling Gwennie and Donald on a sledge. My bedroom clock stopped in the night. I found the spring had slipped off the ratchet and one wire had come out of a lantern pinion and another wire was bent and loose. I did the required repairs and it is going well again: it is 60 years old.
